USNA Class of '63

Electronic Lucky Bag: Fifth Battalion

Gerald Joseph Stiles

Wilburton, Oklahonia

Whirlwind Gerry from Wilburton, in the heart of the tornado country has been storming up a fair amount of activity during his four year tour at the Academy. Whether dragging, working at the business end of a slide rule, or whipping around the Severn in a dinghy, Gerry usually has been producing fine results. He has been Navy's representative often as a top notch dinghy sailor with a real will to win. Soft spoken most of the time he can still come up with a joke or light word to brighten the atmosphere. Gerry has been a light student of poker and could be seen in the middle of any impromptu game. His interest and knowledge extends also to all aspects of aviation, as many a plebe will testify. Although considering many career choices, he has the ability and background to prove a credit to any branch of the service.
